The river is clearing and with a forecast for good weather the next few days, the fishing should be good. The generation is on a two-unit 12-hour schedule with starting times varying each day so one should check the schedule before planning their trip.  The lake level is 469.6 which is 7 feet above normal.  Since the White River reservoirs and the river, itself are high, this generation pattern on the Little Red will probably be the maximum for the next several days.

The caddis hatch seems to be slowing.  Caddis pupa, midge pupa, sow bugs and woolybuggers seem the best choices.

I have decided to start guiding again (due to the virus restraints) beginning June 1.  I have openings starting June 7, 2020.  If you are ready for that fishing trip, please give me a call and we’ll pick a date. During this time of reopening of the state, I am very aware of the suggested safety precautions and plan to practice these for my client’s good health as well as my own.  Looking forward to seeing you soon.

Good Fishing!!
